RECORD BREAKER POLLY GUNDRY
POLLY GUNDRY achieved a personal target when she firstly equalled (on MULLIGAN PET) and then (aboard NED THE POST) broke Alison Dare’s record to claim the most wins ever ridden by a lady point-to-point jockey at Wadebridge today. It was especially satisfying for Polly when both winners were trained by she and her partner Ed Walker.
Polly said “It’s great to get the record, especially when you think of how many good riders there have been over the years. I haven’t set myself any targets. I’ve been lucky enough to win the Aintree Foxhunters and the Horse and Hound Cup, and the other big race I would love to win is the Cheltenham Foxhunters.”
Polly has won the ladies’ point-to-point title 7 times since she began point-to-pointing at the age of 16 in 1992. At the close of play today her winning total stands at 288.
Many congratulations to Polly who is such a great and modest ambassador for our sport.
